This is my Gran, who was born and raised in Vermont, in New England.
She was stylish and really good fun, and she carried on making friends even into her eighties.
Her husband played the banjolele, and he was a surgeon who cured King George V1. When the King was recuperating in bed, he called Grandpappy in to thank him. 'Kneel down', he said, and pulled his sword out from under the bedcovers and knighted him.
